Greetings from Scotland

The Scottish Mist is falling this morning, as it did yesterday. The clouds are supposed to be gone by this afternoon. I am looking forward to the sun. It's not as cold as I thought it would be. It was cool and dreary before we left home, so maybe I am prepared for this weather.

I have found things a little different. East Kilbride, where we are staying, is built on a circle. Instead of stop lights, there are circles that you go around. We have one in Kingsport and I was familiar with it, but I don't know where I am going here. It is a little different. They call the circles "round abouts."

The houses are smaller than ours and the rooms are wee small. The area is neat and clean. There are windmills here to generate electricity. I saw them early Wednesday morning. I had seen windmills in California, but these have larger blades and they turn most of the time. 

So far we have not taken many pictures. I slept most of the day yesterday. I did speak at the church's Ladies Bible Class and fell in love with all the women. They are so nice. I think I was hugged and kissed by most of them. I thought of Romans 16:16 where Paul wrote to salute with a holy kiss. That must have been what we did. I think we are to love all of our brethren.

Jon and Arlene will be off next week and we will travel. There are several places we want to see and we will do that then. Right now we are just resting and enjoying the quiet. It is very quiet here. Everyone is gone but Scott today and he will leave for the University before long. Jon and Arlene will be back this afternoon. We will decide tomorrow where we are going and I will keep you informed then. Have a wonderful day.

  1. Sounds like you are having a wonderful time! I wonder where the 'roundabouts' started. I have been in some roundabouts in South Carolina and there is one in Alexandria, LA where James' parents now live. They seem to be a new thing here but are gaining in popularity.
    Thank you for sharing your pictures and telling of your adventures. I am living vicariously! ;)
    Hope you have a safe trip!
